1.Show that for  a uniformly charged sphere, all multipole moments other than  vanishes.

2. In the multipole expansion of Coulomb potential, there are three dipole terms corresponding to . Add these three terms to explicitly show that the expression for the potential is given by .

3. A charge distribution is given by

Expand the potential due to this charge density  in a multipole expansion and obtain its leading term for large distances.
